When Celebrity’s Millennium-class ships were built, they were powered by state-of-the-art gas turbines. A few years ago, as the price of gas rose dramatically, they became expensive to operate, and as regular readers will remember, through an engineering miracle, they were able to install a diesel engine (which was much more economical to operate) and leave the gas turbines in place. Celebrity is glad they did.
Constellation’s diesel engine has broken, and it needs a large component replaced. In the mean time, it is operating with its “spare” gas turbine, meaning itineraries are not being affected.
